About Dance du Soleil

Dance du Soleil is a unique and captivating belly dance company offering a wide range of classes and training programs for all levels of dancers. Our curriculum is the result of a collaboration between two accomplished dancers with over thirty years of combined professional experience, Leyla Soleil and Andrea Love. After fifteen years of training, we are delighted to announce that our main protege Babette Soleil, has now crossed over to become a Dance du Soleil instructor and choreographer as well.

The Dance du Soleil method has a rich history, dating back to 2004. We are widely known across Ohio and beyond for creating beautiful and engaging dancers with strong technique. In fact, many of our students have gone on to become highly sought after professionals! We don’t just teach a couple of belly dance moves, but rather attempt to cultivate the dancer holistically. No matter if you’re attending class for fitness or to really learn the art of dance, the Dance du Soleil method is an excellent choice.
